High On Fire - Snakes For The Divine
Excellent album. Matt Pike's sludgy riffage combined with awesome bass and drums fills out very nicely.
Fear Factory - Mechanize
Machine Head style tracks, with Soil styled vocals. Excellent.
Avenged Sevenfold - Nightmare
Debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard charts recently. Mike Portnoy replaces the late Jimmy Sullivan aka The Rev on drums, not as good as their previous releases, but still quite excellent.
